Over the ocean, a mechanism whirs into gear and 1,000 gallons of water start to rush through a jet pack’s motorcycle-style throttles, lifting the wearer up toward the sky. Though that experience might sound like a scene from an action movie or the last barbecue you attended, it’s at the heart of Aqua-Jet Miami’s regular outings. Trained by Jetlev Academy, Aqua-Jet’s instructors provide thorough yet brief safety instructions to riders before they take flight strapped to Jetlev R200X jet packs. Once in control, riders can reach heights of up to 30 feet while they fly above the ocean and take in scenic views of downtown. These flight experiences are also coupled with sunrise and sunset boat tours, which provide ample time for guests to play around with provided inflatables and paddleboards as they wait their turn to fly in the jet pack.
